Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    I once thought Klinklang would be a decent pokemon to rack up kills with, but it turned out to be rubbish and down the box it went.

    Yeah, I remember training one and it was a pain.

    The entire line only learns Steel, Normal and Electric-type moves, has higher Attack stat than Sp. Attack and it only gets ONE PHYSICAL STAB MOVE, which unfortunately has low BP and is slightly inaccurate.

    I mean, it's not even Electric-type yet it learns all these Electric moves. I mean, stuff like Thunderbolt, Charge Beam, Zap Cannon, Volt Switch, Thundershock etc.

There are a couple of TMs that give a STAB for it, but Liepard does not stand up to Zoroark despite being the same type.

      But Zoroark isn't actually in the game!

      Liepard is at least better than Mightyena. If only it learned some better moves...

        Au contraire. If you have an Event Celebi, get the little boy Zorua in Castelia City; turns out they're friends (keep a free slot in your party, it has to physically join the party). Got an Event Shiny Entei, Suicine, or Raikou? Head for the woman in the trailer at Lostlorn Forest; this Zoroark comes at Lv.25. Or even if you can do those (or not), just trade for an Egg (in your own Trainer ID when hatched) or a baby (in another Trainer ID, it levels up quicker).

        There are three available ways to get your Zorua/Zoroark. Do whatever one you like best and train it. It can come in handy for sneak purposes at first, in fact, as it comesout disguised as a Pokémon in your party when you go to battle, throwing off the opponent's battle strategy and could essentially give you a free hit for a couple of turns until they figure it out.

          Well, you technically don't have to know anyone to have a Zorua in your game. It's very easy to get through the GTS, seeing as there is a boy that shows you a picture of Zorua in Castelia.

          Mightyena's worse? Meh, at least it has Intimidate.

          tbh the fact that it wasn't part electric turned me off from using it, actually. Originally that was the disappointing factor for me, rather than how strong it apparently isn't. :(

              For me it was Swoobat! I raised it from and from level 5 and by level 49 it special attack was only 110 ... compared to my, for example, Arcanine which is a pysical attacker...Eventually I dropped him in my box and use a manaphy I recently got from pkmn ranger for the elite four... Don't worry I raised him from lv 1 :D

                Quite a few actually. Keep in mind when I first purchased PKMN White, I knew NOTHING about their stats. Here are my responses in quotes.

                -Emboar
                "Why is this thing so damn slow?!"

                -Zebstrika
                "If you faint because of another water pulse attack I swear.."

                -Heatmor
                "Aren't you ever gonna evolve?"

                  Zebstrika. It looked so cool but it was ridiculously fragile. Don't 1HKO the opposing Pokemon and he's gone. Seriously, he was dying from water attacks. Still love him though <3

                    Swoobat.. It's extreamely terrible in my mind. i used it for my black run-through, and it was crap. i only kept it because it was the fastest on my team at the time.

                      Reuniclus. I spent so much time raising them in White and then again in White 2 only to be bitterly reminded that they're so, so slow.

                      Also Beartic because its abilities are terrible.

                        I thought it looked pretty neat, but he didn't really preform as well as I hoped he would have.

                          Pansear, Purrloin, Ducklett..
                          My disappointment in Pansear was probably my fault. I evolved it, not knowing it learned nothing after it's evolution.
                          Purrloin was too fragile, even after it evolved. It's speed didn't make up for it, and it was only average offensively.
                          Ducklett was a weak little thing, which went away when it evolved. As Swanna, it is average everywhere; that's all I can say. There was nothing that stood out about it, nothing special. It had no strong points.

                          Reuniclus may be very slow, but it's a plus if Trick Room is used.

                          Its high Special Attack makes it a common Trick Room threat in OU, with its good movepool and stats to get it going. Tested one myself and if trained right it can be deadly not to mention most of the Psychic-types in-game have pretty good stats.

                          Amoonguss; I still love it, but it's just not a strong Pokemon at all.

                            Snivy. Almost its entire moveset is grass type moves, and it has no significant stats except speed. Even the WATER type starter beats the grass, because of its ability to learn both Megahorn ad Ice Beam. Although I wasn't surprised. The only time I remember the grass starter NOT failing us is Gen III with Torterra's ground type to back it up, yet still making it so water type attacks still did decent damage.

                            I was going to use a Manna/Musharna and I dropped it early on because it just didn't do anything. Same with Pansear/Simisear and Panpour/Simipour. Much better Pokemon of their type are available. :/

                              Simipour. When I chose Snivy for my starter, I was frustrated at the third gym, as both of my Pokemon kept losing to Leavanny, Burgh's main Pokemon. When I got to Castelia City I came to the area with the Scientist giving out stones to elemental monkeys. I got excited and decided to evolve Panpour with the Water Stone at Level 18, and didn't realize that there were better moves that I could've used to have a shot against Burgh, such as Bite and Scald. That's what I don't like about elemental monkeys: They can't learn any level-up moves once they are evolved.

                                When I first played it i was very disappointed:
                                Pidove and evolution just learned special attacks
                                Blitzle was very weak, his shock wave did nearly nothing

                                As I played it again the dog from the beginning seemed very strong with STAB tackle and body check
                                But Stoutland was again very disappointing

                                    I know people might hate me for this but a lot of the Gen V PKMN were disappointing :\
                                    It's still the best PKMN Generation in terms of gameplay though

                                    I didn't like the Elemental monkey's evolutions, and how they didn't naturally learn moves anymore.

                                    But it isn't meant to be a strong attacker, though. :( it's meant to be a supporter Pokemon and it's damn good at that imo.

                                    Yeah I'd imagine that'd be annoying :( however the entire move pool of it is pretty good IMO, with iirc it having access to surf focus blast ice beam and grass knot iirc (maybe not tho).
